Body / Tummy tuck and mini-abdominoplasty

Sometimes diet and exercise are not enough to maintain a slender waist.

In these cases, you can consider abdominoplasty or mini-abdominoplasty.

Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen at the same time approaching the abdominal rectus muscles together.

This surgery is suitable for those who want a flat and skinny stomach. Abdominoplasty is also useful for the abdominal muscles that have relaxed, called diastasis, which is very common after pregnancy.

What is a abdominoplasty?

Dr. Borra intervenes to remove the skin and excess fat from the belly with a tummy tuck.

With abdominoplasty Dr. Borra even corrects the abdominal muscles often flaccid and spaced from bloating (diastasis). This procedure reduces the space between abdominal rectus muscles that form the anterior abdominal wall itself.

If at this level there are hernias, for example in the umbilical area, they are reduced in the abdomen.

Why would you want a tummy tuck?

I have a fat belly

A relaxed abdomen can be unpleasant, but a  globular abdomen may also become a health problem. No doubt physical activity and a healthy diet help to prevent this problem. To fix modest increases of adipose tissue  a liposuction is sufficient, but for cases in which the skin is too abundant  it is better to have a abdominoplasty

I have a hernia

If at this level they are hernias, such as round the navel, Dr. Borra will take them away. In the presence of an umbilical hernia, a net is applied in order to maintain the stable results over time. In severe it can be diagnosed as a gutting. This condition is more serious than just excess skin and health insurance companies may recognize this surgery as a necessary intervention.

I had fluctuating weight change

After pregnancy, especially after having twins, or a result of fluctuating weight change belly relaxation can be a problem. Sometimes it’s not just a relaxation, but of a real encumbrance that makes everyday gestures difficult, such as bending to tie your shoes. A relaxed abdomen can be unpleasant, but even a globular abdomen may also become a health problem.

I also have a lowered pelvis

Abdominoplasty gives a flat stomach, reduces the hips to the back and lifts the relaxed pelvis. The scar is low and hidden by underwear.

What do you get from a liposuction?

A flat stomach

If the pregnancy has given you a beautiful child, but your tummy is gone, Dr. Borra, Lugano’s plastic surgeon, can help you. Turn to him with confidence to regain the form of a time.

For the best possible result, we expect Dr. Borra to perform the tummy tuck in anesthesia.

If the skin is relaxed especially in the lower abdomen, the operation can only be performed on the part of the stomach below the navel. This surgery is faster and the scar is shorter. Contact today Dr. Borra who will be very happy to talk to you of the details of this technique.

Often Dr. Borra combines liposuction and tummy tuck for a complete result and a slimmer silhouette.

Pubic lifting
With age the skin of the pubis can relax: you can combine abdominoplasty with a pubic lift without adding scars.
